Wellness can be defined as freedom from disease. Wellness research shows that when people take care of themselves and manage their lifestyle, they are healthier and more productive and do not miss as much time from work. This also results in less need for medical service

Holistic, on the other hand, describes an approach to life, rather than a focus on illness. Holistic is based on the laws of nature. Therefore, when we say we are holistic we are talking about our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. When one part of a person’s life is not at its best, it impacts all of the other parts of that person. For example, if we are nervous or anxious, this may result in a physical reaction such as a headache or stomach ache. When we are angry and stressed over a long period of time, we could possibly develop an ulcer.

A holistic approach goes beyond eliminating symptoms. Normally, if we have a headache, we take an aspirin. With the holistic approach, we may take the aspirin, but then we figure out what is going on in your life that caused the headache in the first place. Is it caused by something mental, physical or emotional? The idea is that once you get to the root cause and resolve the cause, the symptom goes away. See more here.
